Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a cheap DJ?

To find a cheap or affordable DJ for your party or wedding, search for local DJs near you and ask for free cost estimates from several of them. While some DJ profiles may provide an automatically generated starting cost, it’s important to contact the DJ to get an idea of how much your particular request will cost. This also gives you the opportunity to ask them other important questions and make sure you are a good fit.

How do you book a DJ for a party?

To book a party DJ, start by comparing local pros in your area. Check out their ratings and reviews to find out: 

  • Are they professional?
  • Do they show up on time to set up for the party?
  • Do they know how to feel the energy in the room and adjust the music accordingly?
  • Are they friendly to guests and take song requests?
  • Do they specialize in the genres you want (pop, Top 40, hip-hop, etc.)?
  • Do they have experience playing at your type of event (weddings, birthday parties, etc.)?

Whenever possible, watch videos of their performances. 

Your last step is to contact three to five different DJs near you to ask them questions and get price quotes.

How much is a DJ?

When you hire a local DJ, expect to pay roughly between $300 and $800. But be aware that the actual price will vary based on several factors, including the length of the DJ’s set and how much of a presence they need to be. Larger venues can drive up the cost, as this requires more equipment, soundchecking and setup. Adding extras like confetti, fog, light shows and black lights also adds to the cost.

8/6/2016 DJ Nico went above and beyond in all aspects of our wedding reception. From aiding us in the planning of the reception to remaining flexible during the event as things changed. He did everything in his power to ensure our event was spectacular to include adding extra lighting and being the MC. DJ Nico's professional approach made him a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend his services for all of your DJ needs.

We were looking for a more affordable DJ than we were finding, and that’s why we turned to Thumbtack. After talking back and forth with DJ Nate as a result of his positive reviews, we arranged a phone call consultation. We didn’t hear from him that day or for a few days after that. We thought that we were just not going to hear from him. Finally, he said he was in a place that his reception wasn’t that great and that he’d call the following day. He doesn’t call again and didn’t call since. We’re pretty sad that a phone consultation didn’t come together.

Roman was awesome! He was a great communicator and arrived to the site on-time. Roman is very friendly and plays amazing music. All I kept hearing from the audience was "the DJ is fantastic." Everyone was very happy with his performance, therefore, we will definitely call him in the future. I recommend Roman Candles!

I gave it a 4 star because my rating is based on the guests that i invited for my daughters grad party. They enjoy mostly on the photo booth instead of the DJ part for the music. It didnt have that much varieties of music it was mainly for younger generation instead of mixed island and oldies. But overall my guests love it and enjoyed that was my main concern.

Ben was perfect! We could not have asked for a better DJ. He helped and guided us through almost every aspect of our wedding. He truly made us. And our guests, feel like Ohana. The music was amazing and all our guest loved it! Definitely we, and our guests, will be booking him for any and all future events.

I hired Remixx for my wedding at Queen Emma summer palace in Aug 2018. There’s so much to say about this pro and his service to excellence. The DJ set up and assistance with the program was exactly what I envisioned and more. The coordination and professionalism that Ben provided along with Alex the Emcee is unmatched for the price point of service. Alex was hilarious and entertaining and kept our crowd laughing and engaged throughout the night. They both were very accommodating with my adjustments in schedule and worked to ensure myself and my bride did not feel rushed at any point of the night. Our crowd wasn’t much of the dancing type and we didn’t plan a segment to have dancing as part of our program but the music selection still made people want to get up and dance. Overall we are extremely satisfied with the quality of service and would recommend them for your next event!
